Shkodran Mustafi opened the scoring with a lovely header before Alexis Sanchez settled things with a second just before half time as we eased to a fully deserved victory.

However, Mustafi has admitted he was offside in the build-up to his goal against Tottenham on Saturday.

He said: “Two weeks ago we conceded a goal [against Manchester City] that was not marginally offside, it was a yard offside, and nobody had anything to say.

“I watched it again. It is not true it was offside, and there was a foul [from Spurs].”

But when asked for his thoughts on the decision, Mustafi said he lucky the goal was not disallowed.

Mustafi said: “As I was going up for the header, I told Mesut Ozil to go to the ball and swing it in.

“If you have players who can put crosses in like that, you have belief to get your head on the ball.

“I was happy the referee did not blow the whistle for offside. I am lucky to get away with it.

“That is football, you get things for and against you, at the end of the season the decisions end up as a draw.”
